    My Great Grabdmothers Name was (Dorothy) or  Mary Dorothy Tierney . I was hoping to find out more about her roots?  She was born in South Africa 1905. I would like to try trace her family lineage.

    Kind regards??

    I note with surprise that you are using my family Armorial on your website. I would kindly ask that you remove this immediately. This is my personal family arms and was granted to my ancestor Matthew Tierney and thence to his brother Edward. It is the Armorial of Thy Ó Tighearnaigh of Fearann Ó Tighearnaigh. I do not want to take the matter further but I can do so should you not remove this patented Armorial immediately.
